Danny Welbeck and Ashley Young took part in a webchat on the official site where they were asked questions by the fans.

Ashley Young said that if he could have played a part in any game from our history it would be the Nou Camp in 1999.

“I’d say the Champions League final from 1999,” he said. “That’s the one that sticks out for everybody. You just think, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that’s happened’.”

Welbeck, who grew up in Longsight and is a lifelong United fan, was just 8-years-old at the time and watched the game with his family at home.

“I was in the front room watching with my family,” he said. “The celebrations were mental. I think the whole street went wild!”
